I think Polish people used to be more "proud" as a nation in the times of communism or during the wars; nowadays the world has become more "global" or "united" so less and less people remember what Poland and some Polish people did in the past... (unfortunately).

Polish in polish is "Polak" but no "polski"
Because it's a noun not an adverb
We are so superb ( we think )

Me too!
I have never met a more placid and helpful person than in the polish. They have the quality I expect my parents would have loved. They have a polite and non arrogant way. They have political correctness and have a more romantic way of being than the westerners. I am scottish and would have no problem with a polish guy getting romantic except i am happily married - they have amazing manners - which i don't think western men possess. that is because they are taught manners and respect - not like the westerners.

Amazing what a difference a world apart can make - free - but personal and protective and sociable. Polish have qualitied that most westerners - because they don'y understnd - humiliate or protest against. Intsead of learnig fom there loyality and respect.

not like the westerners.

I know, in our societies they are much like the last of the Mohican's, but gentlemen still exist out there you know.

most of the girls do not seem to appreciate us. :(

I think that these things are still taught in the home, or at least they were in mine, both of my brothers are gentlemen

most of the girls do not seem to appreciate us.

Girls are becoming more like men, overweight beer swilling and generally rude and foul mouthed and trying to be equal to men (nothing wrong with having the same career prospects of course)...I couldnt think of anything worse to be honest. It's women in the UK you need to blame as well as the men Roseann they're just letting the side down.

To be honest i am overweight but i have been brought up well with manners and exeptance and am never rude and i am very polite - i don't personally believe this has nothing to do with the topic of convo

Not meaning that nastly cause i do still take pride in my apperance as in clothes make up jewlerry and things as such :)

sarah - honey, I was in Poland earlier this year and the women are so well dressed take a real pride in themselves then I came back home and saw how awful English women had let themselves go - I have friends that are not by any means a size 10, I was referring to girls that wear tight tops (2 or 3 sizes too small) are loud and general act like men when they're out - dont get me wrnog I'm all for having a good night out with friends but women in this country seem to have forgotten to act like ladies, I'm a girly girl and wouldnt go to shops dressed some of the women I see on nights out......That was my point in my previous text

The topic strayed off as do many.

Oh righty i can really see where you are coming from now sorry - Your talking about what some people call " gezzerbirds or ladettes". They are the kinda that go around in tracckie bottoms 3 sizes to big for them and them little tight tops which you were referring too and talk spit and drink as a man would.

I am also a girly girl and would never dream about wearing tight clothing knowing i am not a perfect 10 i stick to the fashionable baggier clothing hee hee :)

If you are still looking for a poem, I might suggest Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz. I have to admit I am not Polish but I was told that this work was an ode to the Polish culture. I have started reading it (400 pages well worth it) and I find it beautiful. Good luck.

Merged: Zero Negative feelings towards Poland

I have Zero Negative feelings towards Poland... I just want to clarify that!

Anyone else like to Clarify that so we arent calling names, please do, if you dont
like poland then please go to another board and post your views, I think a majority
here are very Pro Poland, and While there is Negative in some areas, this does not
mean we are disrespecting anyone, each subject needs discussion, every country
has areas that need help, talking about a subject doesnt make everyone a phobic.

Totally agree there Patrycja.
I have met quite a few people who are getting annoyed with the amount of Polish people coming over here, but i point out to them that the Polish are normally doing jobs that 'us' english don't want to do so why shouldn't they be here.

I welcome them all with open arms, especially the tall good looking ones. he he! :-)

I'm pro Poland, but as I live here I reserve the right to complain when I see fit.

I'm not anti-anywhere else.

I think that's what I mean.

but there are negatives there too... i would be telling porkies if i said there werent...

you are right, I basically said this to stop the polonophobia stuff, negatives do exists
and its problems that need to be addressed by those living there as we in our own

if I bring up a "CONCERN" it doesnt mean I would be disrespecting in anyway as
others bring up concerns that need attention. and each country has concerns
about issues..

And I complain alot, so have at it.. but be positively concerned about it ok!!! lol

I don't have any ill feelings towards Poland. I can say that I don't agree with the way things are handled, but that goes with almost everywhere you go.
